Bow and stern stalls

So I was playing in my local park and a photography student posted up and took a gazillion pics of me practicing bow and stern stalls and turned it into a slide show:

One thing I always knew is when I get to a stern stall I am still in a forward stroke position and lose my stall when I try to put my paddle overhead?? any suggestions or critiques would be helpful. It also looks like I am too vertical?

when stern stall. lay down and relax in the water let your pfd float you. when you have your core tensed up, it brings your boat right over, no matter where your paddle or head is. you might be starting to vertical and you throwing your weight back is good for a bit but once your torso like it is is under water you are just pulling your self over or trying to prevent pulling yourself over. pfd will help. as you should always wear it.

You mean to tell me that Microsoft's msn photo website only works on Microsoft's IE? Who'da thunk it!

Nice sequence of pics. Maybe that student can follow me around for a few days?
